    We were friends of Donna & Terry for only a short time having just met them about 10 years ago. What wonderful people, a pleasure to be around, and a joy to spend time with. We have had only occasional contact with Donna since Terry’s passing and, like everyone, we are saddened and send condolences and prayers to her family & friends. The world could use a lot more Donna & Terry Loughs. Great people.
    Doug & Lynn

    Donna, you have done more for me with love and guidance than any other person I’ve met. You were a wonderful woman and I am lucky to have had you in my life. I’m better for having met you. You will be missed and never forgotten. Zoe and Zarra loved their “grama doughnut” and so did I. Rest well Donna, say hi to Terry for us. your son, jim
